    You'll get used to that, the reaction to recumbents is the polar opposite of what you get when you're on an upright.

    Here WP_20180202_11_09_38_Pro.jpg is just one method of fitting mudguards , the top mount can be made using a hole to fit the threaded fork top and the lower mount could attach to the caliper mount , personally l prefer the formed bar under the guards rather than above . M5 domed nuts look best for securing the guards , eBay or Halfords .
    Front lamp mounts can also be fitted to the top arms together with computer and phone mounts , just increase the thickness to avoid vibration problems.
    Free free to ask any more questions .

    regards Emma

    My partner told me what the reactions i got from people I passed. I think she said the looks were of pity with a bit of "isn't it good he's able to get out!" Basically they thought I had a disability to rider a recumbent. I think if that's true then it sums up people from morecambe well totally backwards, ignorant and... Well I'll stop there because I'm leaving Lancaster on a train now and ppl from Lancaster are as bad. Let's not start with Garstang! :laugh:
